- A dogale (pl. dogali) is a document issued by a doge, the title for the highest elected official in several Italian republics. The Doge of Venice was one of the most powerful among them. Dogali were used to transfer power to certain individuals, granting them various rights, responsibilities, and privileges. Although secular documents, the iconography of illuminated dogali was usually religious in nature to suggest the approval of divine authority.
- The arms of the Contarini family are displayed on this leaf--eight Doges of Venice came from this family.
- 16th century
